State Rep. Gregg Underheim has always been against medical marijuana until 
recently when he came down with prostate cancer. Mr. Underheim has now 
introduced a bill that would allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for 
medical reasons.

Don't wait like Mr. Gregg Underheim until it's almost too late. Think about 
those who need medical marijuana now, and are suffering because Wisconsin 
does not have a law allowing medical marijuana. I urge all Wisconsin 
residents to contact their state legislators and urge them to support 
medical marijuana.

Over 80 percent of Wisconsinites support medical marijuana as well as the 
Wisconsin Nurses Association and many other medical organizations. 
Marijuana has great potential as a medicine for people with Cancer, 
HIV/Aids, MS and America's second leading cause of blindness, glaucoma.
